About this Grantee

Mrs. Anker and Mr. Blair help their small rural school and enhance students’ technology and job skills through the implementation of a personal computer maintenance and repair class. Students investigate the inner-workings of a desktop computer and disassemble outdated models to update the components. After exploring the merits of building a computer, students research the price and performance of different components and investigate software prices, compatibility, and performance. Students design, assemble, and test a computer based on their research and donate the completed machine to their chosen school organization.
